Patna Museum - The Breathtaking ‘Jadu Ghar’ of Patna Housing Priceless Artifacts

The hotel seemed a wonderful choice because the services were prompt, which felicitated me beautifully for quick exits in the mornings. This day I had all preparations to visit the Patna Museum, which is also hailed as the State Museum and locally referred to as the ‘Jadu Ghar’. Ever since the Museum was built, it has only expanded with the inclusions of rich artifacts, which have been found in and around Patna. I began my day early and made way to the Buddha Marg, where this British constructed structure has stood housing some of the very important relics enlightening us about the glorious past of Patna. The structure in question is pertaining to Mughal and Rajput architecture and has been successfully able to conserve and exhibit the rich heritage of the region.

Some of the amazing artifacts that I laid eyes on in this remarkable and famous building are art objects, bronze images, paintings, textiles, terra cotta images and a rare collection of British paintings of renowned artists which depicted day to day scene of the people in that era. I made note of the First World War Canon too, which sat proudly there as a powerful reminiscent of the past. The need for such a museum for Patna arose in 1912 but with the deliberations, the Museum could be completed only by 1928. Built in two stories, there are ample things to keep the visitors engaged for at least half a day. While some claim that the historians spend their entire day pondering over the artifacts uninterrupted here. A remarkable thing to see here is the fossil of a tree, which is said to be about 200 million years old.

One of the prized possessions of the Patna Museum is the casket, which supposedly contains the ashes of Lord Buddha. It is said to have been unearthed at the relic Stupa of Vaishali by renowned archaeologist A.S.Atlekar. So much of history at one place can truly be pretty overwhelming. I was completely impressed by the place. Next up for me was the Funtasia Water Park Patna and I had come completely geared for it.
